Under Ninja: the manga

Kengo Hanazawa started the serialization of Under Ninja on 23 July 2018, in the 34th issue of Young Magazine. After the first three chapters it was announced that the story would be released bimonthly (every two issues), but so far the serialization has been patchy with a one to three week break between each chapter.

Kodansha has collected its chapters in single tankōbon volumes, the first of which was published on February 6, 2019. As of September 6, 2021, six volumes were published.

This is the plot

Even at the day of today, the ninjas walk among us, hidden in plain sight, still awaiting their mission orders. However, for some, it takes a lot longer than others to get their orders! Meet Kuro Kumogakure, a NEET and a Ninja. After being out of work for a long time, he finally gets orders from the upper floors!
